When would pupils sit a CE exam?

Modified on Tue, 31 Oct 2023 at 03:07 PM

Pupils are usually entered for CE exams only if they have been offered a place at a senior school that is subject to passing the examinations, which are usually taken in the pupils’ current school.


Pupils at 11+ sit assessments in English, Mathematics and Science when they are in Year 6, usually for applications to girls schools. At 13+, pupils also sit assessments in these core subjects alongside papers selected from a wide range of humanities, languages and classical subjects.
